    Not sure where Amazons fall on the loudness meter but I once lived in the area where a white and yellow bird lived...on the opposite side of the street and down about four houses...and that bird was loud! It went crazy each afternoon when 'its'' kids came home from school. After I found out what it was I just enjoyed its' joy each afternoon but I didn't live in the same building. Even if you padded all the walls in your apartment I'm not sure it would help much.

    Amazons are ranked #4 of top five loudest Parrots to own........really nothing to do no for  s or unless you want to hang these all over your wall Sound blankets are used to absorb sound and reduce noise by creating a sound barrier. Also known as sound barrier curtains, these sound barrier blankets can be suspended from portable frames, floor mounted frames, or attached to your ceiling to serve as a dividing wall between machine noise and employees.

    Macaw- 105 decibels

    Moluccan cockatoo- 135 decibels

    Nanday conure- 155 decibels

    Mealy amazon- 124 decibels

    Quaker parrot-113 decibels

    Mustached parakeet- 111 decibels

    Mitred conure- 100 decibels

    Sun Conure - 104decibels

    Green cheeked Conure 94 - decibels and then it says- at a distance of 100 feet, the average jet engine is 140 decibels, so some parrots are louder! some more comparisons--- Did you just move in? Did they just move in? Seems like even if place is pet friendly management should let neighbors know about a pet this loud either moving in or if you just moved in. Maybe you can get out of lease. Or maybe apt. complex will pay for sound proofing blankets on adjoining wall. worth it to check it out.I worked at bird store for awhile we actually were given earplugs at hire on.

    I would think that would be very difficult to do since you don't own the place. They do make sound proofing panels but I'm not sure that will completely quiet the noise so that the neighbors aren't disturbed.
